‘Nine Lives’: Ursula K. Le Guin’s Sci Fi Story To Receive A Feature Film Adaptation!!

Deadline is reporting that Ursula K. Le Guin’s acclaimed science fiction story Nine Lives is set for a feature film adaptation courtesy of producer Gavin Humphries (Pin Cushion) of the UK-based Quark Films and Josephine Rose (Slaughterhouse Rulez) of Bandit Country.

First published in Playboy in 1968, Nine Lives takes place on a moon base for off-world drilling and “follows two jaded workers whose excitement at the prospect of incoming human company is dashed when they are instead sent ten clones.”

Siri Rodnes, the BAFTA-nominated director of the short film Take Your Partner, is set to helm Nine Lives, as well as penning the script with BAFTA-nominated writer Tom Basden (Fresh Meat).

Last year, Critical Content acquired the rights to Le Guin’s 1969 sci-fi novel The Left Hand of Darkness to develop as a limited series, and the celebrated sci-fi author was attached to serve as a consulting producer on the project before her passing earlier this year aged 88.
